She hates groom, doesn't want to get hit up for money

(Newser) – Sounds like there's little love lost between Julia Roberts and her half-sister Nancy Motes, at least if the National Enquirer is to be believed. According to Radar, a source tells the tabloid Roberts won't be attending her younger sibling's wedding because she's not a fan of groom John Dilbeck, a former Panda Express employee. "She’s convinced he’s sponging off Nancy, who doesn’t have much money in the first place," says the source. "Now, Julia won’t go to her wedding because she’s worried Nancy will try to tap her for more money."

Apparently Roberts is afraid she'll end up paying for the nuptials—and this after she got her sister a job as a Glee production assistant. The Enquirer notes that the sisters have fought before, notably in 2005 when Motes dared to take pictures of Julia's newborn twins, and in 2011 when Roberts made "disparaging" comments about Motes' weight.
